Things to see in the 9th arrondissement

Begin your stay in the 9th arrondissement with a pleasant walk along the broad and leafy Boulevard Haussmann, named after the 19th-century city planner who famously redesigned the streets of Paris to create the long, straight avenues so iconic today. Step off the boulevard into department stores Galeries Lafayette or Printemps and spend a leisurely afternoon browsing designer boutiques for special souvenirs of your Paris adventure. While you shop, look up to admire the unique glass roofs of store-lined passageways around the Grands Boulevards, built in the 19th century to shelter Parisians going about their daily business. As evening approaches, head to the SoPi area to experience trendsetting French cuisine at restaurants like Buvette Gastrothèque on Rue Henry Monnier. Complete your night with a cultured evening of opera or ballet at the Paris Opera, or perhaps take a tour of the iconic Palais Garnier opera house, setting of Gaston Leroux’s novel Phantom of the Opera.

Good for shoppers and sightseers

If you've come to Paris to shop, you’re certainly on the right track in the 9th arrondissement. Upmarket department stores like Galeries Lafayette and Printemps offer designer couture, jewelry, perfume, and beauty products, all housed within stunning Belle Époque buildings. Pause for lunch under the spectacular stained-glass cupola at Brasserie Printemps, then hunt for original pieces of clothing and craftwork in the many smaller boutiques that nestle alongside these bigger names. When you’re all shopped out, head to the Musée Grévin waxwork museum to view lifelike models of international and French stars like Edith Piaf and Zinedine Zidane.

How to get to the 9th arrondissement

If you’re arriving by air and you’ve got lots of luggage, simply hail a taxi outside the airport—from Charles de Gaulle, this will bring you directly to your 9th arrondissement hotel in about 50 minutes. Using public transportation, take the Roissybus from the airport straight to the Paris Opera; alternatively, get the RER B express train to Châtelet Les Halles, and use metro line 7 (magenta) to reach the Opéra station. From Orly Airport, take the OrlyVal shuttle to Antony station, then switch to the RER B line. The area around the Paris Opera is very walkable, with plenty of metro and bus connections for traveling longer distances.
